Re: Is it OK to change the product name in Differential Build(Update Release)

When you said "update release," are you talking about major or minor upgrade? If it's a major upgrade, then it should be fine.
If it's minor upgrade, please note that InstallShield by default, if I am not mistaken, use the value of ProductName property for the name of MSI file. This behavior will violate the rule, see Changing the Product Code. If name of MSI is not tied to the value of ProductName property and stays unchanged, then it should be fine.

Hi Tsung,

Thanks for the reply.

Actually it is an InstallScript project not an MSI. In installscript I guess there is no such tying up.

Can I proceed if there is no such tying up in Installscript, to change the Product Name.

Please advise.

Tks 4 reply.

Actually it is not a MSI Project it is InstallScript Project.

I guess there is no such tying up in InstallScript. If there is no such tying up then will it be fine to change the product name.
